la dame de fer

Written by: cherilyn fry

Built somewhere between 1887 and 1889
she became a spot
for lovers
who overlook the city
in amazement at the Seine
as it flows lazily through the bustling city
of narrow roadways
and glimmering lights

She rises from the ground 
this immense metal structure that
speaks of man's ingenuity and imagination
those individuals who desire in their hearts to become one-

she is inspiration
both to civilians and those of artistic bent
lending her spirit
to the brush of an artist in pigment

oh my she is beautiful
as she graces the skies sublime
towering over any other building
she is truly so fine.
